Shop in the Spotlight: Teapigs

I don't know about you, but I don't think I can ever drink too much tea. It's just when I drink the same type all day, by approximately 12.04pm I'm starting to get a serious case of tea-fever (It's like cabin fever, but with tea. Obviously.)

My need to mix up my tea-habit has led me to start trying every type of tea I can get my hands on. Luckily, Teapigs do about a bazillion different varieties that should keep me entertained for some time. Also, their 'tea temple' design allows them to pack whole leaf tea but in a bag design, so it's as easy to make as regular stuff but with much fuller flavours.

My favourite is the popcorn tea. Like sugar puffs in liquid form, this feels a bit naughty but is only about 3 calories per 100ml. It will also stop me snacking (I hope). It's £4.49 per 15 bags. That's a lot less than fifteen Snickers.

Equally brilliant is the chocolate flake tea - it's subtly chocolatey like when you've been dunking sneaky biscuits in your brew. It's £3.99 per fifteen - not bad for a fortnight of evening treats for me.

They have also got me craving iced tea with this liquorice and mint blend - I imagine I'd feel a lot better if I went a little easier on the cocktails and drank this over ice the next time I have a sunny day in the garden. It's £4.49 per fifteen bags.

Their range is much vaster than this - their chilli chai and super-powerful matcha tea are making me very excited - and their postage is reasonable too. In fact, it's free over £35, and I can't imagine it will be hard for me to spend that much if I'm stocking up.


  1. Oooh I've been wanting to get a Matcha Tea for at home.... and I've been meaning to try Tea Pigs for ages. I got a little sample box of their Jasmine Pearls in a goody bag last night, and they look very exciting!

    And no, you can't have too much tea!

  2. I absolutely love this brand of tea! Awesome packaging and a brilliant range of flavours. I love the popcorn tea the best - it just looks so pretty in the bag and it is something different for that 3pm pick me up!

  3. Their liquorice and peppermint is amazing

  4. My favourites are their camomile (whole flowers - so pretty and delicious!) and their lemongrass (seriously cleansing and deliciously citrussy). Highly recommended!

  5. I flippin' love Teapigs! Am a bit addicted to the liquorice and peppermint. Haven't tried Popcorn yet so will give that one a go next!

  6. If you're a fan of interesting tea you should check out Yumchaa - I own so much of their tea it needs it's own cupboard!
